I am sorry, but I cannot speak with you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service, but the site is based on the US. In Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking with you on the telephone as you are not my client.

If your daughter says that she is not guilty then she should retain a lawyer to represent her. But, if she is not sure whether she is guilty or not then it is most likely the best case for her to try to plead guilty to a lesser offence as then there is certainty and then she does not need to pay legal fees.
To find a lawyer in BC you can contact the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be $25.
